Changing Times…..

   
 
A remarkable group of women, the unique Wexford order of Sisters Of Perpetual Adoration have maintained an unbroken vigil of prayer in Wexford since 1877. Dwindling numbers, like so many other orders mean that they are now considerably diminished. This morning a mass was celebrated for the the sisters and those lay people who take an hour or more per week to spend in silent contemplation with them.

An hour of unbroken and uninterrupted silence in this busy world is a remarkably difficult thing to achieve, whether Christian, Buddhist, or secular.
